GUEST,murray@mpce.mq.edu.au The little Seagull guitar (11) RE: The little Seagull guitar 08 Aug 00


Thanks Doug and Spaw. The Larrivee has a bad reputation here (in Sydney). It is surprising, because it has such a good reputation everywhere else! Anyway, nobody wants to handle it. I'm kind of sorry; because I would like to look at one

I use a small bodied guitar at the moment. It is an Australian made Maton. It differs from Martin 00 type guitars in that it has quite a lot more depth. If you know the Gibson "Nick Lucas Special", it is something like that in dimensions. Anyway I can use another one (I don't think it is just GAS--I have to commute from my home in Blackheath to Sydney once a week on the train with a handfull of luggage and sometimes a classical guitar in its hsc.) I have a secure place to keep a guitar in Sydney. I was thinking of one that is not too expensive, which would leave out the Larrivee, I guess. Anyway Maton has put out a cheap(er) version of my guitar ("M" series--their lowest line) and I will probably wind up with one of them. However, I thought this was a good opportunity to look at other small guitars. I really enjoyed seeing and handling a Martin 000-15S and a small Taylor (not a baby), for example. Actually I was disappointed with the sound of the Taylor. It might have been a bad one, or a badly set up one.
